At Trumble's Chelsea and Adam talk about ways to help get pregnant. They decide to do things the old fashioned way.


Eden arrives at the ranch to hang out with Kyle. She has movies and beer. Kyle is distracted and starts talking about how much Jack's marriage sucks. Eden hopes they can work things out. He doesn't want to talk anymore. They kiss and wind up in bed.


Outside at the Abbott house, Summer and Noah arrive and sit behind Phyllis and Nick outside. Katherine and Murphy follow. Kay wonders what's keeping Nikki. Vikki whispers to Billy that her dad marrying Sharon is another of his stupid games to ruin things for Nikki. Inside, Nikki tells Victor to go so she can marry the man she loves. He tells her to stop the nonsense talk. Sharon enters. Victor tells Nikki he and Sharon got married. Nikki says they deserve each other and stalks away. Sharon tells Victor she knew he'd be there. He reassures her and they go. Outside, everyone hushes as Nikki appears. Jack beams from his wheelchair. When she reaches Jack he slowly stands up. Jack makes a heartfelt speech to Nikki, who says she's so proud of him...and proud to be his wife. She says vows of her own and they're pronounced husband and wife. Everyone applauds as they kiss. Jack sits back down in the wheelchair. After, Phyllis sees the Victor/Sharon nuptial news online and tells Nick. Victoria joins them for a vent session and learns Restless Style had the exclusive video. Abby, Summer, and Noah watch it nearby. Kay and Murphy sit with Traci and Ashley talking about New York. Abby joins them, and asks who's ready to be appalled. Inside, Nikki tells Jack that Victor came to tell her about marrying Sharon. He realizes that's why she was late coming outside. Nikki says she almost wishes she'd asked Victor to stay and see how happy they are. Jack gives her a peculiar look. They follow Summer outside to cut the cake. Billy toasts them with some questionable marriage advice, and Jack and Nikki thank everyone. Abby catches Nikki's bouquet. Sarge gives Jack kudos for pulling it off. Ashley then asks to speak to Jack in the house. Inside, Vikki is arguing with Billy about posting the video. Ashley needs to talk to Billy, so Vikki goes. Ashley tells Jack and Billy she's going to New York with Traci. Jack says he didn't intend to run her off. Billy says he'll miss her. Outside, Nikki tells Vikki and Kay that Victor could have married Segundo for all she cares.


At Gloworm, Adam and Chelsea observe Gloria giving orders related to Jack's wedding. Glo looks at her phone and announces that Victor just married Sharon. Adam says that's pretty messed up. Chelsea tries to gauge Adam's feelings as he talks about Sharon not being able to handle their happiness. Suddenly, Victor and Sharon enter. Awkwardness ensues briefly. Adam and Chelsea offer their congratulations, as does Gloria. Victor toasts Sharon and tells her their families better get used to them being married.


Victor and Sharon return to the ranch and he wants to go for a ride. She's taken aback, but agrees. Ashley arrives. Sharon goes upstairs. Ashley asks Victor to keep an eye on Abby - she's going to New York with Traci. Victor jokes that he'll keep Abby on a tight leash. They laugh, and then share a teary farewell. Later, Sharon comes in from riding and asks Kyle and Eden if they’ve seen Victor. He rode with her, but she lost him. His horse is in the stable, but Victor's now gone.


Adam and Chelsea eat dessert at home and talk babies. She's happy that Billy and Vikki now have the child they always wanted, and it brought her and Adam together. They kiss.


Still outside at the Abbott house, Phyllis and Nick are discussing Billy when Tim calls her. She lets him know she can’t help him. He says she’ll need to get busy with him at her earliest convenience. He warns her not to keep him waiting or his tape might end up on the news. Inside, Ashley and Traci say their goodbyes to Billy, Vikki, Nikki, Jack, and Abby. Ash and Jack hug and express their love. Ashley tells Nikki her new husband is a lot more like Victor than she may think. Ashley and Traci leave.
